Description
Old Vienna
Sequence for flute (or clarinet or violin) and guitar based on three 19th Century Viennese songs,
interspersed with original yodels

1. O theures Erbsien + Jodel

("Erbsien" was a prison in Vienna, named after the principal food of the
prisoners (Erbsen = peas) - despite its upbeat character it is in fact a moralistic
song advising listeners to avoid crime and thereby avoid prison.
The same tune is also found as a students' drinking song; which came first, I wonder?

2. Servicerl + Jodel
A celebration of drinking and courting.

3. Mein Nachbarin und I + Jodel
A song about getting on well with the widow next door....
